MIUI 7 comes with a really useful feature for those of us with children, Child Mode.

Xiaomi’s Child Mode allows us to hand our phone to a kid, without having to worry that they will mess up any settings, or have access to anything they aren’t supposed to.

With Child Mode, you can blacklist and whitelist every app on your phone, and disable any app to send SMS.
